"I do not believe in gay marriage for the simple fact going back to Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve. I have nothing against them, but I just don't believe in gay marriage," Carolyn Cooper, 48, of Victoria, unemployed.

"I'm excited about that. Gay rights are a big swing vote issue for me. I vote for a candidate based on women's rights and gay rights," Colleen Barnes, 24, of Victoria, pro ballet dancer.

"I'm all for it, I guess," Denise Egressy, 18, of Victoria, student.

"I'm in favor of it, so I think it's good," Paula Borrero, 22, of San Antonio, student.

"I'm a Christian and in the Bible it says it's a sin. I have gay friends though and I don't have anything against them. I just personally don't advocate it," Leah Brink, 22, of Victoria, homemaker.

"I think that's wrong. I'm opposed to gay marriages," Dwayne Parker, 64, of Cuero, retired.

"It's fine. Everyone has their own opinion and everyone has a right to be happy," Karla Gutierrez, 16, of Edna, student.

"He's only doing that to get more votes," Kendra Wier, 29, of Victoria, pharmacy technician.

"I support his changing his position. I think they should have all the rights that married people do, so they can pursue their happiness with their loved one. But I do think it kind of devalues the institution of marriage," Lauren Moreno, 17, of Victoria, student.

"He changed his mind 'cause it's an election year - that's the truth. He's trying to build his voting base from the gay and lesbian community. I don't know if his mind actually was changed. How convenient," Daniel Perez, 37, of Victoria, driver.
